Sometimes we come to the Lord with a heart full of faith, thanksgiving and love and yet at other times we come with a heart full of fear and disappointment with anxiety and confusion. We wonder where God is and what He is doing. But God is good. He welcomes us just as we are. He invites us to come to Him even if we are hurting, weary, doubting, and struggling. With such an invitation let us draw near unto the Lord for He knows us and loves us and is an ever present help in time of need.
